Welcome to Volcano Week 2023!

The theme for 2023 is "Last and Future Eruptions"

Some volcanic eruptions are witnessed by people, who remember what they've seen by writing it down, painting about it, telling stories, or collecting detailed scientific data. Other eruptions go unseen, hidden in the distant past. How do we discover, learn about, and remember those eruptions? We have to look at many lines of evidence to reconstruct the activity and eruptions of volcanoes. Disciplines as diverse as geology, anthropology, soil science, and human genetics can all play a role in helping to unravel the volcanic history of our national parks and our planet.
